The highly anticipated spider worms the title of the sequel has now been announced for just over a year. Shortly after, in December 2021, Sony Pictures Animation released the first teaser for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Since then, there have not been many project updates.
In the movie, Miles Morales will return to the big screen with Gwen Stacy and a new cast of Spider-People as they battle an enemy more formidable than any foe they’ve ever faced. As can be seen from the first glimpse, Spiderman 2099 will be one of the new faces entering the multiverse.
We also know the movie will feature a handful of new Spider-Variants. These include Spider-Punk, Cyborg Spider-Woman, Scarlet Spider, Supaidaman (the Japanese Spider-Man), Spider-Woman voiced by Jessica Drew, and Spider-Man: India. No information has been released regarding the future of the original Spider-Men team. Only Jake Johnson’s Peter B. Parker and Nicolas Cage’s Spider-Noir from the first movie are set to return in the sequel.
Plus, we now know that more Spider heroes will be in this movie, and this time around, they’re all people we’re all connected to.
MCU Spidey in the Spider-Verse
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, will feature Tom Holland’s Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Although it has been reported that the character will appear in the film. It’s unclear at this time if Holland himself will return to voice the role.
Chris Miller, the writer-producer of the project, has openly mentioned the Spider-Verse movies’ possible ties to the MCU and other big-screen Spider-Man universes. He neither confirmed nor denied whether these characters might appear in the animated films. This despite Miller reportedly offering to have Holland (along with Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire) in the first film.
Peter 2 and Peter 3
There have been talks about including a cameo for the Spider-Men, starring Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire. They will either appear in the 2023 movie Across the Spider-Verse or the 2024 movie Beyond the Spider-Verse.
As of now, none of these additions have been officially announced by Marvel, Sony Pictures or Disney and are just rumors.
It looks like Yuri Lowenthal (the voice actor for Insomniac’s Playstation Spider-Man game) is also joining Josh Keaton and Christopher Daniel Barnes’ renditions of the character from Spectacular Spider-Man and the ’90s Animated Spider-Man series, respectively. This would add to the abundance of Spider-Men in the animated sequel.
